It is also handy having them on SD card, if you go to France, as they can be deleted easily if stopped by the Rozzers saving you that €1500 fine  :laugh:

Do the French not let you have speed cams then? Why not?

Yep, from the start of this year  :shocked:

Quote

Effective from 3 January 2012.

French laws prohibiting drivers from carrying devices capable of detecting speed cameras have been extended to include devices able to warn or inform of the location of speed cameras e.g. satnav or gps systems capable of showing speed camera sites as PoI

Penalties can include fines of up to €1,500, confiscation of the device and of the vehicle.

That's interesting, if the wording is followed exactly, the VW Sat Nav is not permitted as it is able to display, even if it is not displayed/enabled. Wonder how the French are going to interpretate this law.

I downloaded the file HERE

Extracted the file and put it on the SD card in a directory called PersonalPOI

Put the SD card in the RNS510

Go to SETUP - NAVIGATION and select My Points of interest, then press import and it should import the database.

Got to SETUP - MAP and Select Map Details, scroll down and Speed Cameras should be the last POI category

I don't have the my points of interest option. All I have is
3 alternative routes
Nav announcements
Time display
Define home
Advanced settings

Can anyone shed some light y it's my working.

It will probably be the firmware version, I think it has to be 3810 or above.

What version do you have?
